50 FREE Online Blogging & Content Marketing Courses

50 FREE Online Blogging & Content Marketing Courses



As I prepare launch my Digital Publishing Academy for the winter session, I’ve been assembling and curating online courses that I want to offer to my students that are totally free or low cost to supplement their learning.

You know, extra classes for those who need more elementary and/or  more detailed instructions.

My target is to come up with 100 courses.

I’m close. I found 50 of them so far, including some courses I found at Udemy, an online learning platform for which I’ve set up an account before and started exploring.

There are classes on there from free to $10 to more.

I also gathered courses from Alison, Open2Academy, skillshare and other open source platform teaching platforms.

The course range in topics from social media, to SEO basics to Blogging niche to basic grammar. I have NOT personally reviewed any of these courses and cannot vouch for their quality but I have skimmed through them a bit and found them mostly informative and well taught.

I hope you can benefit from them:
